Metastasis, a cascade of events beginning with epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT), is the main cause of cancer-related mortality. EMT endows circulating cancer cells (CTCs) with invasive and anti-apoptotic properties. These transitioning cells leave the primary tumor site and travel through the circulation to populate remote organs, even prior to(More)
BACKGROUND The origin and heterogeneity of hepatic progenitor cells (HPCs) remain unclear. This study aimed to investigate the involvement of epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) in the histogenesis of HPCs. METHODS Surgical liver specimens from patients with HBV-related hepatitis and cirrhosis were investigated with double immunofluorescence labeling(More)
BACKGROUND The clear cell/signet-ring cell variant of cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (cSCC) is extremely rare. Its carcinogenesis has consistently been linked to ultraviolet radiation and HPV in the literature. However, there is little definite information about the contribution of diabetes mellitus (DM) to cSCC. CASE PRESENTATION A 78-year-old Chinese(More)
The normal gastrointestinal interdigestive migrating motor complex cycle was interrupted, and paroxysmal contraction appeared after formaldehyde-induced stomach ache. Activities of nitric oxide synthase, acetylcholinesterase and vasoactive intestinal peptide neurons were significantly reduced, whereas activities of calcitonin gene-related peptide neurons(More)
